-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: I think this is Paris Themmen in a yellow shirt, beige pants, blue scarf, white boots and a white Cowboy hat. Also a light brown jacket with fringes. He also wears a blue white checkered shirt and red scarf with a black flat Cowboy hat on.

I have seen this movie many years ago and don’t remember all scenes.

I prefer the 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) which I even own on DVD.

Also a chubby boy in Lederhosen and traditional German clothes (Lederhosen blog rating 3).

Rating 5 for now but needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.

Great story by Roald Dahl. I don’t like Gene Wilder but R.I.P.

-Comment: Some boys and girls, around 9yo, some few a bit younger, in an one-room schoolhouse. Mainly Mexican looking boys. Shirts and pants without suspenders. Also at least one older teen girl. Most or all have pigtails.

Part 2 of the recent Western TV weekend.

Typical b&w western. I think very few scenes of the kids. Also starring James Stewart.

Rating 2-3 for now only.

-Comment: I think this is 8 or 9 yo Todd Lookinland aka Todd Lookingland (“The Brady Bunch”, probably the brother of Mike) in beige pants with suspenders and in a beige corduroy suit with a bow tie at the end. Several scenes with him.

I don’t like this young actor and his haircut. There are definitely better episodes. What else should I say about this? Nice one-room schoolhouse, but I don’t remember other kids here. Maybe I have missed the beginning (not sure).

Rating just 3-4 for this 1974 episode.

Main entry (rating 9) with some other kids

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color

-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Some, mainly younger kids, boys and girls in different clothes. A boy in beige pants with H-style suspenders, one in a brown suit, another in pants (jeans) and a green shirt. The kids are singing, conducted by Heinz Erhardt.

Girls in pigtails, some in sailor-style dresses. Also some women.

Some other scenes of (this and/or other) kids, but mainly from a distance and in the background.

Starring Pierre Brice, Terence Hill and many others. A similar Karl May movie has been aired before that (coming soon).

Rating 5 only. Somehow I never paid much attention to Winntou movies and most I don’t like.

-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams in a beige Western shirt and I think dark pants with brown chaps and a beige (straw ?) hat. Also shirtless. Also starring Jerry O’Connell (shirtless as well). Set in the 1950s.

I found this by coincidence searching for a related (Jean Shepherd / A Christmas Story) movie starring Damon Raskin (for my overalls blog).

Quite interesting but I think few or very few good scenes. Also bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog.

Rating 5-6 for now only.

Today’s Winnetou movies and Gunsmoke episode coming soon.

-Comment: Gary Gray in tight, dark, striped pants, I think not jeans, a vest and a flat hat. Also a woman with a Cowboy hat, also riding.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.

Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.

Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.

Rating at least 6-7 for now.

-Comment: I think this must be Marie Windsor as fugitive Doll Brown in a vest, Cowboy hat and green scarf.

I have checked this some time ago and can’t say much more yet. 90 minutes Trucolor.

Obviously a typical Western for it’s time. I don’t remember younger actors in here.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

-Comment: Several boys and girls and some few grown-ups in Western clothes including hats in episode 236. Not sure about women and if chaps. Needs to be rechecked.

As announced on my overalls blog (rating 8 for many girls and boys in overalls).

Good and funny saloon scenes but only known in this episode. Good costumes, also the dresses of the girls.

Rating 5-6.
